Tecan Launches Air LiHa for Freedom EVO® Platform
Product News Sep 21, 2012
Tecan understands that flexibility is crucial to making laboratory automation work for users, and is now offering even greater choice, with the introduction of the Air LiHa (air displacement pipetting arm) for Freedom EVO workstations.
This innovative module can be freely combined with other arms - including the Liquid LiHa (liquid displacement pipetting arm) and MultiChannel Arm™ (MCA) pipetting modules - to provide true parallel processing and increased workstation productivity.
The Air LiHa uses advanced air displacement technology to offer accurate and reliable pipetting for Freedom EVO 100, 150 and 200 platforms.
This provides greater convenience and lower maintenance requirements for applications using disposable tips by eliminating the need for system liquids.
Available with four or eight pipetting channels, the Air LiHa offers a broad volume range from 0.5 to 1000 µl per channel, including free dispensing down to 0.5 μl.
Each pipetting channel has a user exchangeable inline filter to prevent liquid being drawn into the pipetting head which, combined with permanent pressure monitoring through Freedom EVOware®, maximizes process security and protects users valuable samples and equipment.
This innovative module offers the best of both worlds by uniquely allowing a choice of pipetting technologies on the same platform, or even combining both air and liquid displacement on a single workstation, providing unrivalled flexibility to suit the needs of users application and laboratory workflow.
